    Very hard to kill... Almost impossible.... Takes a long time to finally remove it... Best practice to use would be to first cut it back, then I"d say either remove the root the best you can and stay on top of it. You can leave a few inch's of growth and spray with 2 4 d or 3 way and that should repress it from growing back as fast. Very troublesome plant....

    Bindweed is a messenger saying that there is hardpan within the soil. Although this is not always true, certain weeds tell you whats going on in the soil.
